COMPLIANCE OF IMMIGRATION LAWS PROVISION OF THE CYBER SECURITY RESEARCH 
                          AND DEVELOPMENT ACT

  Mr. HOLLINGS. Madam President, I would like to engage in a brief 
colloquy with the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, Senator 
Orrin Hatch, regarding H.R. 3394, the Cyber Security Research and 
Development Act, which was passed by the Senate in October and is set 
for consideration by the House of Representatives today. Section 16 of 
the bill is intended to ensure that Federal grants and fellowships for 
cyber security research and development are not awarded to individuals 
violating the terms of his or her immigration status, individuals from 
States sponsoring terrorism, or institutions that are not in compliance 
with appropriate record keeping requirements for immigrant students.
  Mr. HATCH. Section 16 of H.R. 3394 would ensure that the authorized 
funding in the bill for research purposes does not support individuals 
in violation of U.S. immigration laws. The intent of this section is to 
prevent any funding, directly or indirectly, of any individual who may 
pose a threat to our national security, or of any higher education 
institution, nonprofit institution, or consortia thereof that is not in 
compliance with the immigration laws. This section does not provide any 
new or additional authority to the Immigration and Naturalization 
Service or any other federal agency.
  Mr. HOLLINGS. The ranking member is correct. Our intent with this 
provision is not to create new immigration laws or grant new authority. 
Rather, this provision merely makes compliance with existing 
immigration laws a requirement for grant eligibility. We also recognize 
that this section cannot take effect until regulations are issued under 
8 USC 1372(c)(1).
  Mr. HATCH. I agree with the chairman of the Commerce Committee. I 
also want to him, Senator Allen and Senator Wyden for working with me 
to include these provisions in the act.
  Mr. HOLLINGS. I thank Senator Hatch. Section 16 will ensure that our 
national security is protected while increasing critical research and 
development cyber-security programs.
